Hong Kong Dining, Foods, Restaurants, Shops, Tips

You can't talk about Hong Kong without talking about the food as it's such an integral part of the culture. Hong Kong is known as the 'culinary capital of Asia', and as the place where the eating cultures of East and West meet. The sheer range on offer is impressive in itself, with more than 11,000 restaurants to choose from.

Dining in Hong Kong

Hong Kong recently became only the second Asian city to be awarded its own Michelin Guide. If that wasn't enough of a reason to visit, the city has also just waived the alcohol duty. There has never been a better time to come and take part in the Hong Kong Food and Wine Year, launched by the Hong Kong Tourism Board. The festivities include a spectacular Hong Kong Wine and Dine Festival to be held from the end of October to early November. There are food and beverage offers and promotions in popular dining areas all year round, which will be downloadable from our dedicated website, HKFoodandWineYear.com, packed with essential information. Don't miss the chance to recognize Hong Kong's rich gastronomic heritage by celebrating with a sparkling array of events throughout the year.
